The most emblematic corner of Palma: Plaça de Cort

It is the heart of the historic city center. Cort Square, the Town Hall Square, is one of the places with more character of the old Palma. If you look closely at the front of the main building ... the clock must be stopped. Declared of cultural interest (BIC) on June 3 1931, it has tiny details like snails or lizards cut into stone.

One of the most characteristic elements of the facade is the splendid bench that invites you to sit and let time watching passers-by. A bank that has a name: "Bank of vague" or "Sinofós" Majorcan expression "si no fos per ..." (if not for...), widely used catchphrase on the islands and an excuse for not working.

The ancient olive tree, over 600 years old, is another attraction of this place. Undoubtedly it is the most photographed tree in the city, with more than 8.5 meters high and 7 canopy volume. Like the bank, it has also a name: s'Olivera Cort.
